Grosjean doesn't think Gasly was at fault for penalty: Red Bull f****d up

Haas F1 driver Romain Grosjean doesn't think Pierre Gasly was at fault for impeding him during qualifying for the Monaco Grand Prix, as the 33-year-old thinks Red Bull should have advised Gasly his fellow countryman was coming.

Gasly was eventually penalised for the incident, being handed a three-place grid penalty for stopping Grosjean.

Grosjean got the worst part of the deal, though, as his flying lap was ruined by the slow Gasly, meaning he was knocked out of qualifying in Q2 in contrast to his teammate Kevin Magnussen, who went on the Q3 and got the sixth quickest time and will now start fifth because of Gasly's penalty.

"Poor guy, he wasn’t told anything," Grosjean told Motorsport.com.

"It has got big, big consequences for me because I could’ve made it into Q3 and obviously I ended up in 13th.

"I think Red Bull massively f**ked up that one. Pierre couldn’t do anything."
